Updated: Mar 29
West Orange, New Jersey – Scimedico, LLC has added the 2018 American Association of Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) in Baltimore Maryland to launch its 2019 outreach for the company's market leading preventive maintenance solutions.
“The laboratory animal research sector is important for Scimedico,” explained Scimedico CEO Miguel Bermeo. "The humane and appropriate treatment of laboratory animals that AALAS stands for is in direct alignment with Scimedico's approach to preventive maintenance in every laboratory. Our mission is safety, hygiene, and a productive and appropriate work environment," stated Bermeo, "we believe our services support the larger AALAS mission."
Scimedico's Preventive Maintenance offering centers on combining inspection, testing, decontamination, and air testing. The objective of PM is to maximize safety and avoid down time. The initial step involves a full inspection, testing, and documentation of the status of each feature and function on the equipment being "PM'd." The Scimedico Decontamination Process applies an eight-step workflow to the equipment which concludes with microbial testing. Scimedico then re-tests all features on the equipment. The final step is air flow testing to assure the ventilation on the equipment is functioning properly.
"Our goal at AALAS is to communicate, educate and raise awareness regarding the benefits of our robust preventive maintenance offering to the AALAS end user community. We believe that our solutions are designed to ensure the safety, productivity, workplace quality and overall cleanliness for this user base," explained Kelly Lord, National Account Manager for Scimedico's Preventive Maintenance Services "Scimedico is here for the long haul", offered Scimedico's CEO, Miguel Bermeo. "The AALAS member prioritizes the safe, human function of every animal laboratory environment and at Scimedico, we passionately advocate for services that are in alignment with the AALAS mission. We are excited about going to Baltimore."
The American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) is a membership association of professionals employed around the world in academia, government, and private industry who are dedicated to the humane care and treatment of laboratory animals, as well as the quality research that leads to scientific gains that benefit people and animals.
